Spaces are missing in item titles

I'm adding content to my site to test a template and check my ordering works and I'm noticing that the item titles don't have any spaces. I'm getting:

Summer2013Gertrude in summer in AliceLuke Allan

when it should be:

Summer 2013 Gertrude in summer in Alice Luke Allan

the separate fields being: Summer - 2013 - Gertrude in summer in Alice - Luke Allan

I've checked through documentation and only found this mention: If multiple fields have title=“true” set, they are concatenated together with a space to form the title.

Not sure what I've done wrong - all fields have title="true"

<div class="poem-box">
    <h1>Words for <perch:content id="poem-season" type="text" label="Insert Season" required="true" title="true" /> <perch:content id="poem-year" type="text" label="Insert Year" required="true" title="true" /></h1>

    <h2><perch:content id="poem-title" type="text" label="Poem Title" required="true" title="true" /></h2>

    <perch:content id="poem-in-full" type="textarea" label="Poem in Full" html="true" editor="ckeditor" />

    <h3>by <perch:content id="poem-author" type="text" label="Poem Author" required="true" title="true" /></h3>

    <perch:content id="slug" for="poem-title" type="slug" suppress="true" />

The first one I added ages ago did have spaces, but subsequent additions today don't and when I went to edit first addition and saved changed, the spaces between the fields disappeared.

What could be causing this?

In the region options, check the "Join title fields with" option. Make sure it contains a single space.

I hadn't spotted that option as I thought this was something automatic - adding a spce intothe box has sorted it - thanks!
